Description:

Dr. James Fowler has asked these questions, and others like them, of nearly six hundred people. He has talked with men, women, and children of all ages, from four to eighty-eight, including Jews, Catholics, Protestants, agnostics, and atheists. In many cases, the interviews became in-depth conversations that provided rare, intimate glimpses into the various ways our lives have meaning and purpose, windows into what this books calls faith. Faith, as approached here, is not necessarily religious, nor is it to be equated with belief. Rather, faith is a person's way of leaning into and making sense of life. More verb that noun, faith is the dynamic system of images, values, and commitments that guide one's life. It is thus universal: everyone who chooses to go on living operated by some basic faith. Building on the contributions of such key thinkers as Piaget, Erikson, and Kohlberg, Fowler draws on a wide range of scholarship, literature, and firsthand research to present expertly and engagingly the six stages that emerge in working out the meaning of our lives--from the intuitive, imitative faith of childhood through conventional and then more independent faith to the universalizing, self-transcending faith of full maturity. Stages of Faith helps us to understand our own pilgrimage of faith, the passages of our own quest for meaning and value.

James W. (Jim) Fowler was born in Reidsville, North Carolina, on October 12, 1940, the son of a Methodist minister. Fowler received a B.A. from Duke University in 1962, a B.D. from Drew Theological Seminary in 1965, and a Ph.D. from Harvard in 1971. Fowler is the author of To See the Kingdom: The Theological Vision of H. Richard Niebur. He has also written several books on faith development, including Becoming Adult, Becoming Christian: Adult Development and Christian Faith; Stages of Faith: The Psychology of Human Development and the Quest for Meaning; and Faithful Change: The Personal and Public Challenges of Postmodern Life. He has contributed to numerous other books, and is co-author of Life Maps: Conversations on the Journey of Faith; Trajectories in Faith: Five Life Stories; and Toward Moral and Religious Maturity. Faith development, an area Fowler became interested in early in his career, has become a central focus not only in his writing, but in his research and teaching. He taught at Harvard Divinity School and Boston College before moving to Emory University, in Atlanta, where he is the director of the Center for Faith Development.
